Marie A. Côté

For Marie A. Côté, everything begins with pottery. The pleasure she gets from turning a vessel has never diminished, despite the fact that she now mostly works in sculpture and installation. Much as every vessel asks to be filled, her work aims to show us the complex experience that links objects to spaces. We can easily imagine a space devoid of objects, but we cannot conceive of an object without the space that surrounds it. Having received several grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Canada Council for the Arts, Marie A. Côté has been exhibiting regularly since 1986. Her works can be found in many public art collections, including the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, the Canada Art Bank, the collection of the Musée national des beaux-art du Québec, the Loto-Québec collection, the Daniel Weetaluktuk Memorial Museum and Cultural Transmission Centre collection, in Inukjuak, as well as in many private collections.
